March - Mickey DuPre

“Let’s Get Hexed!”— March 17 our guild speaker, Mickey DePre

While known for years as an art quilter, Mickey Depre was secretly a dedicated piecer, at home making bed quilts for her family. If you look closely at her art quilts, you will see traditional piecing found its way into many of them in the form of backgrounds. After all, it is Mickey's saying that "There is enough fabric in the studio to make both art and traditional quilts."

We’re excited to welcome Mickey’s newest lecture “Let’s Get Hexed,” an interactive lecture/demo/audience participa-tion event that includes a small trunk show of English Paper Pieced quilts, some made by Mickey, some antique. She will take the audience thru basting a Hexie hands on as we actually baste one Hexie during the PowerPoint presenta-tion that will be filled with tips and tricks about English Paper Piecing! She will provide the EPP papers. The audience needs to bring two 3.5 squares of fabric, one pin, one needle, basting thread and small scissors. Thimble is optional. Let’s Get Hexed Together!

“A Taste of Summer Carnival Workshop” - March 16 (Thursday)

Wander with Wendy as she guides you through an eclectic collection of traditional and contemporary quilts, all with a common thread - captivating color. She will offer ways of taking a few small steps or multiple bold ones in experimenting with color. Wendy will then explore ways of approaching the color challenge using a tried and true tool - the color wheel.
